Three related stories of love, interconnectedness, and mortality play out over a millennium.

ABSTRACT
Darren Aronofsky directs and writes this epic feature about three similarly-themed stories taking place in the past, present-day, and future, touching on stories of a Mayan warrior bent on saving the love of his life, a medical researcher looking to trees for a cure for his wife's ailment, and a space traveler's bid to prolong his fledgling existence to craft a narrative of quests to alleviate human suffering tinged with varying degrees of success and failure.
